The Industrial Revolution changed Britain. Many complex and connected changes happened.
In this blog I want you to consider the following concepts:
Change and continuity
How did the country change during the industrial revolution? How did factories change and develop? Did people change the way they live and work? What did not change?
New technology, new places to work and new public health problems.
Cause and consequence
Why did the country change? Were these changes positive? Who benefited from the changes? Did life improve for ordinary people?
Why do historians have different opinions about the industrial revolution? Why did people at the time think differently about the industrial revolution?
